This would be nice to have, especially with the new Fire phone.

Not yet - I've been chasing CR about this for the last few weeks & they said their "engineers are looking into it", but as yet, still no official announcement or timescale as to if/when this issue will be resolved.

Does anyone know how to sideload the app onto the Kindle Fire HD, please? Am currently paying for a service i can't receive (it also currently won't work on my laptop)!!

I posted this for a dolphin browser workaround, which includes instructions on how to begin sideloading if you have never done it before...

The advantages of the dolphin browser solution in that post is that you also get HD, where the app is still at 360p. The disadvantage is you may need to use a stylus because the buttons are small.

However, if you still want the CR app, it is also available on the same 1mobil site so you could install that instead of the three APK apps in that post: http://www.1mobile.com/crunchyroll---anime-and-drama-98034.html

They're not my engineers, so I can't really help you there. I'm a member, just like you, trying to be helpful by providing (hopefully) useful information.

That's ok, of course I meant CR's engineers - sorry for the typo! Thanks so much for your help Asharka, it's much appreciated - sadly am not very tech minded, am still very much learning with these sort of things! Thanks again, will give those links you mentioned a try & will try sideloading the app.

I recently tried to use the crunchyroll app on my kindle and as you all know it doesn't work, however I managed to get mine working. What I did was grab an APK installer from the kindle store. Once you have that simply google crunchyroll APK. An APK is simply an android app. The kindle store doesn't have all the really android apps on it but with an APK installer you will have access to them all including crunchyroll. As long as the APK installer is easy to use it is pretty simple to do. Download the APK from somerandom site from google, then install it with the AKP installer app. I hope this helped some of you out
the 0.9.5 version didnt work for me but the 0.9.3 version was fine

As silently as it disappeared from the Amazon app store, now it is back at version 0.9.7. I updated my HDX, and I've only watched a few shorts, but didn't notice any immediate issues.

Even tho it's not listed as compatible with the Fire TV, it does work, but it breaks the transport buttons (something that broke in 0.9.6, so I'm still running 0.9.3 on my Fire TV).

The new version from 0.9.6 broke on the 1st and 2nd gen Kindles, so it would be interesting to see verification from someone who has a Kindle Fire or Fire HD (not the new 4th gen HD). And FWIW, they're going to be rolling out a new version of Fire OS in October, based around a 4.4 branch, which might help compatibility even more.

Mine's HD, not HDX, seems to work just fine. Still only SD res though...

I had to download an old version to get it to work on my Kindle fire. VER. 1.1.5 worked for me.
